Welcome to Magpie Dance

At Magpie Dance, everyone who takes part is empowered for life


We are the UK’s leading dance charity for people with learning disabilities.

Through dance, our participants gain life, social and communication skills with added health and wellbeing benefits.

We also deliver professional training for education, dance, health and business clients, and we work with the NHS to provide in-patient work for people with dementia and learning disabilities.



A range of activities and a helpful pack to get you started, it's easy to raise money to keep us dancing!
